[ROVERNET - UK] transmission leaks

I learnt from an auto specialist:
The torque convertor drains in to the bellhousing via the front seal.  It 
isn't supposed to do this.  If the fluid has come out at the front of the 
bellhousing, very likely the front seal needs replacing.
When it is used much you don't tend to see it, there was some good reason to 
do with antidrain valves in the TC.
